romney, he's going to be heading a political party who doesn't believe it's heading a political party that doesn't believe it's a problem. >> thank you for being on the "ed show." the rachel maddow show is next. >> thanks, ed, happy halloween. my halloween costume again this year is middle-agedle lesles ll lesbian in a cheap jacket. it's halloween where ever it can be halloween. this year it is not everywhere because it cannot be. governor christie postponed it. it will be moved to monday, november 5th to protect new jersey's young trick or treaters. crews were fixes falling power lines. nearly two million households in new jersey are still without electricity today. in reference of how much of the country that means, even if there was one person in each household without pour, even if it was just one, it would mean there are more people in day three of no power in just new jersey than the population of each of these states marked on the map. this is a huge number of americans here. it's nots over, it's not done, it's not past tense. widespread flooding is still present. we talked abo

a person in america. mr. mcconnell does not see it that way. on the political wire the romney's campaign would have could have should have transition website today. surely, this was not supposed to go live until mr. romney actually won the election. the campaign did not wait. they presumably accidentally put it up, a transition website for president-elect romney, how to apply for a job with the new romney administration. looks like because they screen shot it before they finally did take it down, looks like the romney folks had a transition motto all ready to go, a slogan, repeated slogan on the website is smaller, simpler, smarter. when republican speaker of the house john boehner gave his first post election press conference what he thought should happen in this country given the results of the election almost like he thought he was speaking in the context of president-elect romney and smaller simpler smaller branded transition. >> by working together and creating a fairer simpler cleaner tax code, moving to fairer simpler system energized by a simpler cleaner fairer tax code -- >> sim

complicated. after a bad week of polling for mitt romney, top staffers held a conference call with reporters that enumerated their reasons why they see mitt romney as a shoe in despite the polling. they suggested their secret sauce that's more important than the polling is that mr. romney is winning independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. carl rove, for the republicans this year, he took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to the people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter or they are wrong. or they are wrong and they don't noe matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some stuff that makes him believe romney is going to win like crowd size and closing arguments. that shows that mitt romney is totally going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. it's worth listening to the arguments and checking to see if the argument

will see him in chicago. mitt romney will be in boston tomorrow night. hoping for a different outcome than john mccain had four years ago at that sad rally in arizona. before romney gets to boston he will still be on the trail in ohio and in pennsylvania. before the nation renders a verdict on not just a president, but a presidency whose achievements have been seen as almost beside the point in assessing whether the president gets a second term, it's the virtue of this campaign or it's the damning criticism of this campaign to know that this decision has been set up for the american people as if it has very little to do with what this president has done with his last four years. it's not been about his record. it's been about a character kature of his record. and that's why that list of things that have happened in the past four years maybe seems unfamiliar. you'd think after a campaign this long, we could memorize that list, but that's not what it's been about. if barack obama gets a second term, given the achievements of this past four years, he will likely be enshrined as being one of t

to deal with that. and if you're like romney, he's going to be heading a political party who doesn't believe it's a problem. >> jonathan alter, great to have you on "the ed show." thanks so much for joining us tonight. that is "the ed show," i'm ed schultz, and "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >> good evening, ed. thanks for stay with us for the next hour. happy halloween. as you can tell, my halloween costume this year is once again middle-aged lesbian pundit in cheap jacket. boo. because it is october 31st, in much of the country, kids are dressing up in costume and they're trick or treating. tonight, for our producer, it means indulging the frog prince who lives in his house who used to be his son, alias. it is halloween whatever it can be halloween. but this year, it is not halloween because it cannot be halloween ever. today governor chris christie postponed halloween today by executive order for the whole state of new jersey, the state hardest hit by hurricane sandy. they will be moving halloween to monday, monday, november 5th, in order to pro

of president obama, in his role as a campaign surrogate for mitt romney, who president obama is running against, in a presidential election that ends in six days. mitt romney and that campaign today, that campaign that chris christie has been supporting, they made a somewhat remarkable decision to go ahead and keep campaigning, today, to get back on the campaign trail and start doing partisan campaign rallies again, even while the president was still suspending his own schedule, so he could respond to the storm. so what we saw today, in split screen, was president obama departing the white house en route to storm-ravaged new jersey, after he stopped in at fema headquarters, and at the same time, mitt romney in full-on campaign mode in tampa, florida. and then it was president obama touring coastal new jersey and comforting victims of hurricane sandy, while mitt romney was holding what he called a big victory rally outside miami. and while the romney campaign made sure to have their most telegenic staffers say on camera today that they were going to avoid any partisan commentary today out of res

of contradiction. let's remember the politicization of the benghazi issue started with the mitt romney campaign, on the night of the attack. he then harangued the entire republican caucus into joining him on that. now the mitt romney campaign is gone leaving guys like john mccain holding the bag. he's committed to the strategy and has to go forward. now that president obama called him out on public television during a press conference, he has no choice but to double down. and stories like these where he missed the hearing that he was calling for undermine his argument that the obama administration is not giving him enough information. and pushes him back into the argument the obama administration is lying, or misrepresenting or intentionally politicizing the tragedy. that's a much tougher argument to make. and that's the fight the obama administration wants to have. so john mccain's really on his heels. >> that point, about which argument the obama administration wants to have, i mean, the thing that tripped up mitt romney on this in that debate is that he believed what conservative media had b

rallies this entire election season. mitt romney spoke to an estimated 4,500 people in des moines, iowa. then he flew to ohio where 6,000 plus people showed up to hear him speak. then he went to pennsylvania. after that he bolted for virginia. this is a big, big day for the romney campaign. just as this is a big, big day for the obama campaign. president obama's schedule includes a late night rally in aurora, colorado. also in cincinnati, ohio. the president drew a crowd of 23,000 people this afternoon in hollywood, florida, after 24,000 people turned out to hear him in virginia. think about that. 24,000 in virginia. 23,000 people in florida today. in concord, new hampshire, this morning, when 14,000 people turned out to hear president obama, that was the largest crowd ever assembled for a political event in the entire state in new hampshire. in the entire history of the state of new hampshire. i realize new hampshire may not be big, but new hampshire is old. and this is the biggest political rally ever held in the state of new hampshire for the entire time that new hampshire has existe

happened at the end there, mr. romney's face-plant failed attempt at calling the president out for something that the conservative media said he had done, that he had not actually done. but what happened right before that at that debate was president obama defending susan rice and hillary clinton directly, by their titles, and condemning as offensive mitt romney trying to say that that attack was being covered up or that the country was being misled about it. that is what we saw again today on full blast, at the president's first press conference after being re-elected. the beltway common wisdom on this is that president obama is picking a fight with his secretary of state nomination if he does pick susan rice for that position. and when the beltway accuses you of picking a fight, they always mean, oh, no, no, you shouldn't do that. but seeing the president up there talking about this today with such fire in the belly and seeing as he did that as well in the debate when the same subject came up, i think this may be something more than just picking a fight. there's plenty of rea

to take a job with the romney administration. he had been plotting that move behind president obama's back and the disloyalty was the reason he had to go. there was speculation he would have to step down because of something related to the benghazi consulate attack which he was scheduled to testify about next week before congress. before this was a reportable story and we knew for sure that he was going and why, the theories and the breathless speculation about why david petraeus was resigning from the cia went all the way up to and included the idea that maybe he was stepping down to start running as a republican for president in 2016 right now. until we knew what happened, people were crawling up the walls about this announcement from david petraeus today. and then andrea broke the story. and david petraeus it turns out, is leaving the cia because he had an extramarital affair. it was a personal matter. just an unbelievable news day today. joining us now is andrea mitchell. nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent and the host of msnbc's "andrea mitchell reports." congratulations on thi
